This is an amazing experience surrounded by nature and wild animals. Sometimes it's raining but it's relaxing. I loved every minute I spend on it. Just be aware that you need a repellent for mosquitoes.

Nature, as good as it gets. If you are in Peten to visit Tikal, DO NOT fall into the trap of "visiting Tikal for a day" and returning to the "base in another country". You will miss the best of the experience. The howling monkeys,...More
